As you can tell I love slices. I often buy them, make them, or crave them.
And speaking of cravings, I don’t know why, but I’ve been craving a Chocolate Hedgehog Slice for ages so I decided to make one so I always have some on hand.
What surprised me the most about this recipe was technically it’s not a baking attempt. You don’t bake this recipe in the oven at all, it just chills to set.

If you’d like to make your own Chocolate Hedgehog Slice then here’s the recipe:
- 175g butter
- 2/3 cup caster sugar
- 4 tbs cocoa
- 2 tbs desiccated coconut
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 250g packet shredded wheat biscuits broken into pieces
- 250g coarsely chopped dark cooking chocolate
- 50g butter
In a saucepan melt butter, sugar, and cocoa over a medium heat for 3 minutes. Stir it constantly to ensure the sugar dissolves.
Remove from heat and add coconut, egg, and biscuits. Press mixture into a baking paper lined 28cm x 18cm slab pan. Chill in the freezer for 1 hour.
Melt chocolate and butter in a bowl over simmering water. Spread over slice. Allow to set in the fridge for 20 minutes. Cut into pieces.
